Color
Yellow gold
Nose

A little timid to start with, then rum and raisin ice cream, some marshmallow. After 15 minutes in the glass, there's maple syrup, vanilla. A progressively sweet nose, which starts off a little flat.

Taste

Medium-thick, coating the mouth reasonably well. Taste is is initially sweet, moving to pepper and some spices. Finally the oak starts to come through.

Finish

Finish for me was short, with some spice. A little bitterness a minute or so later, finally finishing with cream, but little flavour.

Comments

For me, the nose (after time in the glass) and the presentation are the two strongest parts of this offering. I was hoping for cream/vanilla/chocolate in the mouth, but really only found this on the nose.

Very pretty to look at, and I may try and get a sample of the 25-yo, but for the current price of £60, not for me.

Yellow gold
Nose

vanillig-süß, Zuckerwatte, mit einer gewissen Frische, Spritzer Zitrone, erinnert etwas an Bourbon, im Hintergrund eine leichte, sanfte, trockene Holznote, kommt recht klar, elegant  rüber

Taste

angenehm cremig, Karamell, Toffee, Milchschokolade, sehr, süffig, mit der Zeit im Mund kommt immer mehr Eiche zur Geltung, man merkt die 18 Jahre, Zartbitterschokolade, Kakao, sanfter Pfeffer

Finish

lang, samtig, viel dunkle Schokolade, ein Eckchen Weinbrandbohne, Vanille, ein Hauch Pfeffer

Comments

Geschmacklich "interessant" ist hier freilich nix, das will einfach "guter Whisky" sein, und das kriegt er hin. Süffig, direkt, gefällig, mit einer gewissen Eleganz, nicht sonderlich komplex oder geheimnisvoll.
Dafür sind 75€ auf den halben Liter etwas viel... aber lecker ist er. Und macht ordentlich was her im Regal, ein Hingucker.
